Research shows giving families more school options has the potential to combat urban sprawl and pollution.
So, we're doing something about it.


Our Mission:

  • We support research and policy that sparks economic development and environmental responsibility through more educational options for communities everywhere.

  • We educate citizens on the research and policy that could inform and enhance their neighborhoods and cities.


Many families who currently move when their children reach school-age would remain in more diverse and convenient neighborhoods if they had more educational options. By sharing information about how school assignment changes communities, we impact our neighborhoods, cities, and the planet.


We accomplish this work through engagement with different media outlets, with college students, and with stakeholders. We also facilitate discussion and questions through our online venues (blog and social media).

Research will eventually show the least costly and most significant policy change that cities and states can enact to improve the environment is to promote abundant school choice.
